A Winner, A Sketch Card, and Some Fun News

First the winner of my Clear and Simple Stamps blog candy, picked by
Emily (stampingout on SCS) said...

Oh, WOW! I just went and checked out their shop and I LOVE that they have cardstock to match copics! That is a genious idea!
Their stamps are also super cute! Thanks for telling us about this fab company, Ashley!

Emily, I already have your info so I'll send that out to you. :)

Next is a card. I made this for this current CPS challenge. Seriously, how far out of my box did I go for this one? Ok, maybe not that far but it's definitely not in my comfort zone. The stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. The frame is Melody Ross for GCD. The background paper is Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. The brown CS was embossed with Swiss Dots. What do you think? It's not matchy-matchy like I usually am. It has a slight vintage vibe too, I think. But somehow, I still managed to pull off cute. Sigh...I can't get rid of the cute. It's in my blood.

Ok, next, my NEWS! I am now writing an article for :) How cool is that? I will be writing on Arts and Crafts. You can bookmark my page or subscribe HERE. And you can go HERE to read my first article.
